Miscellanea | Names
What is in a name? Name is very important in everybody's life. As soon as a child is born, a name is assigned to him or her for his or her identification. And most of the time the same name continues to chase him or her up till the moment of death. The association of name and the person is important to recognize a person. It helps to recognize nationality of a person, or even the state in a nation of a person, religion of a person, etc. That is why the importance of name cannot be emphasized.
Many people look for names for their newborn babies. It is really difficult to choose a name, because all the names are not listed anywhere. They come in the mind at random, and thus do not give a whole picture. The list of names is divided under three headings. Girls and boys names are in most used in UP, Madhya Pradesh, Bengal, Bihar etc. but other states can also use it.
Hindu Boys' Names - lists Hindu boys names.
Hindu Girls' Names - lists some Hindu girls names.
Punjabi Names - lists some Punjabi names. Punjabi names are typical Punjabi and Sikh names and are normally popular in Punjabi and Sikh families. Girls' and boys' names are not differentiated here.
